Good Evening Honored Guests, Ladies, Gentlemen and Students -
Our high school years seem to have passed in a flurry of activities: courses attended, grades attained, extra curricular activities, social events and lesson learned. It is hard to believe that the next few months will see the Graduating Class of [insert year] facing new horizons and challenges.
Some of us may stay closer to home, some may move slightly further away and yet others may find themselves in a totally different continent.
Free high school graduation speeches continued.
Where ever you may find yourself and what ever challenge you may have chosen to follow and explore - hold true to what shaped your yesterdays; acknowledge and appreciate what you are today and dare to be all that you can be tomorrow!
As the Graduating Class of [insert year] we need to express our gratitude for the wonderful opportunities that we were exposed to. Our thanks must go to all the staff and the management of [insert name of high school]. We are privileged to have attended this school. [Insert name of school] offers a world class education - of that we have no doubt. As we make a relatively smooth transition into life beyond school, I am sure that the fine education that we received will stand us in good stead - time and again.
Our thanks must also extend to our parents and guardians. You have remained committed to our education, but more importantly, you have remained committed to us. You have stood by our sides, even when things may have seemed a bit rocky - steadfast and constant - stability in a time of turmoil, hesitancy and our quest for independence.
Today, we stand on the brink of a new chapter in our lives. Take a moment to reflect on everything that we have achieved. Take a moment to look back and to see and appreciate just how far we have all come. Today is our opportunity to acknowledge our accomplishments.
Some may have achieved...
